Modulated fibronectin anchorage at polymer substrates controls angiogenesis.


A set of maleic anhydride copolymer thin films exhibiting well-defined differences in hydrophobicity and reactivity was compared with respect to the capability of supporting angiogenesis of human endothelial cells grown in contact. The physicochemical surface characteristics of the polymer substrates were found to modulate the anchorage of immobilized… (More)
